Tips/Tutorials for a Photoshop n00b?

Posted 24 August 2005 - 03:17 PM

Anyone have any tips or tricks for Photoshop that they'd be willing to share?I didn't exactly just get it, but I've never really used it, and always wanted to know how to - so that pics look half-way decent, at least.... :P

Thanks.

Just to the right (on my screen) of this thread it a section called "tutorials" Click the drop down arrow for graphics. Then click photoshop.

A bit of advance for a newbie. Most filters, layer styles, and use of paths are NOT your friend until you really know what you are doing. The most common thing that will get you flamed by other graphic artists is to use lots of dumb filters, including but not limited to; liquify, motion blur, lens flare, wind, solarize, zigzag, and many others. There are usees for some, but only when you are good enough to know how and when to use them.

I'd also advise buying a basic Designers book, this will teach you all the primary concepts and rules of graphic design. USE GRIDS whenever they will useful. And... don't let computers interfere with the bitches. :P

Oh, learn the rules of the thirds and x rule. Also, go look up the golden ratio and then spend a night thinking about it over a bottle of cheap wine. :sleepy:
